RAVNIKAR is a contemporary art gallery that represents a diverse group of internationally renowned artists while striving to promote the emerging generation of young creators. It aims to showcase a wide range of imaginative art practices by creating a platform for local and international artists, collectives, curators, and others working in the field of contemporary arts. Recognizing the increasingly important role that contemporary visual art plays in socio-political and cultural discourse, we seek dialogue between artists, the community of experts, collectors, and the general public through a range of multidisciplinary projects and initiatives.

Since its inception, the gallery's fundamental vision has been to present intergenerational local art production on one hand and to build lasting international partnerships to exchange knowledge and experience with foreign audiences on the other. We try to achieve this primarily through our continuous presence at leading international art fairs and various exhibition exchanges.

RAVNIKAR is a proud co-founder of ETC. magazine, an annual publication that showcases exceptional artistic talent from the Baltics to the Balkans. The main purpose of the magazine is to bring together artists, curators, writers, and publishers working in the field of contemporary art. Focusing on a different theme in each publication, the magazine aims to be a dialogue platform for a variety of voices and opinions from across Europe, contributing to a broader understanding of a particular theme and recontextualizing a border-defined narrative.

The gallery is also the initiator of the Ljubljana Art Weekend, an international platform developed in cooperation with the Cukrarna gallery and the City of Ljubljana. The initiative is part of the network weekend.org and is similar in format, organization, and structure to its parallels elsewhere. A similar operating principle is reflected in our desire to give all organizations active in the field of contemporary art in Ljubljana and those belonging to our partner network the opportunity to present and promote their programs and integrate them into a single, centralized, and accessible platform.

            RAVNIKAR is a member of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA), a non-profit arts organization dedicated to cultivating, supporting, and promoting new voices in contemporary art, and a member of the Gallery Climate Coalition GCC, an international membership organization that establishes guidelines for environmental sustainability in the arts sector.

            The program of the gallery is supported by the Municipality of Ljubljana and the Ministry of Culture.
